To the Coleman family and friends, please accept my belated condolence. Can you imagine a time when there will be no more sickness (Isaiah 33:24), no more death (Isaiah 25:8) and all those in the grave will be resurrected (Acts 24:15). Soon we will not need to use our imagination because Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) promises us that by means of his Kingdom (Daniel 2:44) these things will be a reality and we know God does not lie. (Numbers 23:19). For more information on this subject, click the following urls: and
