Bible Verses to Comfort the Grieving

Here are some Bible verses to comfort the grieving in their time of need.

1 Thessalonians 4:14
But you, O God, do see trouble and grief; you consider it to take it in hand.
Psalm 10:14
“Surely the LORD is in the place, and I was not aware of it.”
Genesis 28:16
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
Psalm 119:50
It is only a matter of time before it is our “time to mourn.”
Ecclesiastes 3:4
The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning.
Ecclesiastes 7:4
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41:10
For you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
Psalm 31:7
“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
John 6:67-68
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

We’ll all be back together after all.

We’ll all be back together after all.

We’ll all be back together after all.

This is a song about how we will all be back together after all…

You know I used to worry about one thing then another
And what was going to happen after all this life was over
Would I ever see my wife again, my family or my friends
Or would I spend my afterlife in dreaded loneliness

After all my trials and troubles
After all my fears
After all my doubts and worries
After all my tears
After all my years on this world
Where was I to go
And what’s the point of living…after all.

Then I found out about Jesus
And how He gave His life for me
How He left to prepare a place
And I no longer fear
I know we’ll be together after all.

After all my trials and troubles
After all my fears
After all my doubts and worries
After all my tears
After all my years on this world
I know where I will go.
We’ll all be back together after all.

After all the tears
After all the years
We’ll all be back together after all.

After all is said
After all is done
After all’s forgiven
We’ll all be back together after all.

The focus passage of this sermon can be hard to embrace. It speaks of a narrow door, few entering the door and the fact that the door will close. Traditionally this has been interpreted as meaning “if you believe in Jesus, you are saved. If not, you are damned, no ifs, ands or buts.” Heaven for those who believe hell for those who don’t. But is this truly what Jesus was teaching about salvation? What can we say about salvation and who does enter the narrow door. There are five considerations:

1. Jesus is the only way into the Kingdom.
Religions don’t save. Good works don’t save. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. There are not may ways. The door is not wide. Some might think that this is intolerant, but whatever a person believes is narrow. All beliefs are singular. Even if you believe that all religions lead to God, this belief is just as narrow as any other. Jesus was saying that He is the only way to the Father, not just one of the good guys doing good things, but God himself here on earth.

2. Jesus is the light of the world.
The man Jesus incarnated this light, but even more so, wherever light is found He is the light that is found. Whatever light people have is from Jesus. God is working to give light to all. To the extent people are seeing the light of truth; it is Jesus working in them.

3. God wants all to be saved.
God’s dream is for every person to participate in the Kingdom. God is at work in every human heart, trying to get them to open up to Him.

4. Many in the Bible end up in the Kingdom who didn’t consciously know Jesus.
In the Old Testament some outside lineage of Jacob like Melchezedik, Jethro, Rahab, and Job were considered participants in God’s Kingdom. They were sinners in need of Jesus as much as anyone else.

5. Assurance of entering the Kingdom at the end of the age is given only to those who are now living in the Kingdom.
God is working in all people, and therefore there is hope for the entire world, but the only assurance is for those who are in a real relationship with Christ that is those who are being saved now. The New Testament only celebrates the death of Christians. With regard to everyone else we say, “I don’t know.”

In fact, the New Testament doesn’t focus on escaping destruction at end of age. It focuses on getting right with God now, being saved now, and entering the Kingdom now. Instead of, “Will I be saved, live in the Kingdom, or dance in the love of God in the future? We must ask, am I doing this now? If you are, you don’t have to worry about the end.

Hello,
If you have recently lost a loved one, I would like to say I am very sorry for your loss. I wish I could say something to take away the pain… but I can’t.
IN A NUTSHELL:
I create custom personalized memorial pictures using your photos of your pet.
I founded Heavenly Images over 15 years ago after I created my first memorial picture of my dad with Jesus. It gave me so much peace to actually visualize my dad with Jesus and I have been helping others with their grief since that moment.
I also wrote a book to help people who are grieving the loss of a pet (or any loved one for that matter). It is titled “My Pet Letter from Heaven and is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and eBay for around $10. The book has a surprise “twist” ending that I have found both very revolutionary and extremely comforting at the same time.
I also have a music album on Amazon called “Only With Love” which includes the song “After All” that you can hear on this video.
Thanks for watching and I hope you visit my website heavenlyimages.com so that I might create a beautiful personalized pet memorial picture for you that you will cherish forever.
God bless.
Barry Barnes

Recent personalized pet memorial picture created by request of customer for his wife.

HEAVENLY IMAGES

Hello and Thanks for visiting.
My name is Barry Barnes.
I create personalized pet memorial pictures for people.
I haven’t always created personalized pet memorial pictures.
Back in ’99 I created my first memorial picture.
My father had passed away suddenly from heart problems in ’98 and I had never really gotten to say “Goodbye” to him.
So after learning Photoshop, one of the first projects I attempted was to create a memorial picture of my dad.
At first I just had a picture of him in the clouds.
But then my wife, Jenny suggested that I put Jesus in the picture with him.
I couldn’t believe the peace I felt just gazing at that picture.
Not long after that, my wife’s father passed away and I created a memorial for him and gave it to Jenny’s mother.
She still has it on her wall.
Soon I founded Heavenly Images and over the years I have created hundreds of personalized memorials for people.
I still create custom personalized memorial pictures for people but in the last five years or so I have found that custom personalized pet memorial pictures are in more demand by the general public. I found this to be especially true as I moved to selling all my products on eBay.
I am now moving back to my website Heavenly Images CLICK HERE
Please check out my newly remodeled website. It is now “mobile friendly”.
I am still selling a limited number of items on eBay and you can check that out by CLICKING HERE”

Please be sure to check out my 100% positive feedback on eBay.

Thanks again for visiting.

Come back again soon.

God bless you.
