I wrote this for my friend David, I don’t think he’d mind sharing it.
You will understand in a moment.
The Earth will be restored to a Paradise. (Revelation 21: 3,4) Faithful ones and even ones who have not known God will live again. (Psalms 37:29, Acts 24:15) Don’t give up hope or believe anything bad will happen. Jesus compared their condition to sleep. (John 11:11) They have been acquitted of their sins. (Romans 6:7) And they are safe in God’s memory. (John 5:28) Right now they are not suffering and are not conscious of anything at all. (Ecclesiastes 9:5,10) They will be resurrected. This is the truth from the Bible. Have faith. So far, about 20 billion people have lived on the Earth. God remembers everything about them, even their memories that make them who they are. They are in God’s limitless and perfect memory. That’s why they are as good as alive.
Alive in God’s Perfect and Limitless Memory
Resurrection Note: To God people are alive even though dead because he can see their memories.
To him they are as good as alive.
Mark 12:27 He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living. You are very much mistaken
Living memories. He actually remembers their animated life. He can actually see them as if they are still alive. Although they are not self-aware because they do not presently have life.
They will receive new life and God will restore their memories. That’s how they can resume living. Nothing about them is lost. Everything they ever experienced and that is stored away in their memory, is restored. Even everything from their senses. They are self aware again. They are truly alive again.
At death brain cells are no longer energized. God must memorize everything about the person including their memories to keep the memories alive as it were.
Psalms 146:4 His spirit goes out, he returns to the ground; On that very day his thoughts perish.
My point is , your loved one will live again, the Lord Jesus Christ will resurrect them and God will restore their memories and give them holy spirit.
Such sorrow as you have will be no more.
3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them;
4 he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.”
5 And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
This is your promise from God.
Bless you and be at peace.
Remember that God loves you and Jesus Christ loves you
You may choose to wait to see your spouse again rather than get remarried.
He Will Call
- Life, like a mist, appears for just a day, Then disappears tomorrow. All that we are can quickly fade away, Replaced with tears and sorrow. If a man should die, can he live again? Hear the promise God has made: (CHORUS) He will call; The dead will answer. They shall live at his command. For he will have a longing For the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we shall live forever, As the work of his own hand.
- Friends of our God, though they may pass away, Will never be forsaken. All those asleep who in God’s mem’ry stay, From death he will awaken. Then we’ll come to see all that life can be: Paradise eternally. (CHORUS) He will call; The dead will answer. They shall live at his command. For he will have a longing For the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we shall live forever, As the work of his own hand.
