  • My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Joyce. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth he performed all sorts of astounding miracles. Jesus Christ cured some of the people from whatever diseases and infirmities they had Matthew 9:35. Jesus Christ brought back to life some of the people that had fallen asleep in death one of them was his friend Lazarus that had been dead for 4 days John 11:11-44. This foreshadowed what Jesus Christ will do in the very near future right here on the brand new Paradise Earth under his kingdom rule that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord’s Prayer no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-4. Please read about this wonderful promise in your Bible it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time
