To the family and friends,
I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one.
We live on a beautiful earth. How long does God want humans to live on the earth?
He told Adam if they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad he would surely die (Genesis 2:17). So if they hadn't eaten from that tree they would not have grown old and died. We all came from Adam and Eve, so we have inherited imperfection and death (Acts 17:26). Romans 5:12 says: "That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned." Even though Adam and Eve disobeyed God, God has not changed his purpose for the earth and humans living forever on it. After God cleans the earth off of all wicked people, then he will make it possible for humans to live forever on the earth. Please read Psalm 37:9-11 and 29. Through God's kingdom government with Jesus as the king, God's will will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
Then our dead loved ones will come back to life (Acts 24:15)!
