AMEN!!!!!!! john6185 AMEN...!!!!!!!!We lost a friend to Covid last week and it was distressing to many. He was a Christian and died that way. We and many others prayed that he would rise from the bed and go home and he didn't in the earthly sense. A lot of people asked "why" after they prayed, why did God nto answer their prayers? The answer is that God did answer their prayers, He is all knowing and our Heavenly Father and doesn't a good Father do best for his child? If we honestly believe the there is a Heaven and a Savior that loved us so much He died for us, why would we be so selfish as to desire that the departed one remain on this earth that has become so evil due to mankind? God indeed did raise him from the bed and he did go home and as a Christian he is now with the Lord. the Bible says, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints." Jesus died for us and if a man says he "found the Lord" he is mistaken because Christ came into the world to seek and save the lost. You see, Christ finds us, He seeks us and then we must respond one way or another-either accept Him or reject Him, it's our choice and it makes an eternal world of difference.
