May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Hoya Clemons Jr. “He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Just imagine no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for at Matthew 6:9,10; God will remove sickness, old age and death from the human family. No human suffering of any kind. God’s original purpose for the earth being a paradise will be realized.
