  8. Janice Lee Graham

    May these promises found at John 5:28,29 comfort you and yours during this sad time. This scripture tells us one day Christ will call to all in the grave and they will awaken and hear his voice. This hopeful promise of a resurrection is also stated at Acts 24:15 where says there is going to be a resurrection. This is one of many trusted promises mankind will benefit from under Christ earthly kingdom. Please visit Jw.org for more bible truths and information about Christ earthly kingdom.
