    Verses 6,7: Even the wealthiest man or woman can not buy everlasting life. We must put our full faith and confidence in Jehovah God because he is the only one who can provide us with everlasting life.

    At the age of 20 years old I had to have 'open heart surgery'. I was confident of where I would go in the possibility of a random medical complication. While laying on the cart, waiting to be pushed into the back room for prep work by the doctors, I had complete sound mind and peace of spirit about the matter. What was the worst thing that could have happened? - - I could have died. GREAT!!

    That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. though bad things can happen to christians. and good things seem to happen to bad people. though both the evil and the good die. the upright shall have dominion over the evil left in the grave because he trusted in Jehovah God!
  • Marshal Albritton
    Psalm 49:15 This trully is a passage that creates confidence and peace in me concerning death. Along with 1 Thess. Ch. 4, I take a remarkable zeal against death, almost like the attitude that one boxer has toward his opponent.
    I am child of GOD, and like Jesus, my Father will also one day raise me up out of the power of the grave.

    When we are faced with struggles in life it is good to know that where we find most comfort is in God. As much as I would love the devil to stay gone he is not going to . My comfort is in knowing like Lazarus he cannot take heaven from me.
