Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. In the Bible, a man named Job raised the question: “If an able-bodied man dies can he live again?” Then he answered: “I shall wait [in the grave] until my relief comes. [God] will call, and I myself shall answer.” (Job 14:14, 15) What a joy it will be when that time arrives and the dead are reunited with their loved ones! “What happens when you die”, Find the Bible’s answers to this question at (Go to Bible Teachings -› Bible Questions Answered
