    Please allow me to offer my condolences to the, Pittenger family with these healing words: “Then Jesus, after groaning again within himself, came to the tomb… Jesus said: “Take the stone away.” When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Lazarus, come out!” The man who had been dead came out.” (John 11:38-44) The resurrections performed by Jesus offered clear proof that God gave Jesus power over death. In fact, the Bible says that Jesus now possesses “the keys of death.” (Revelation 1:18) So Jesus will unlock the gates of the grave, just as he ordered that the stone of Lazarus’ tomb be rolled away. Your loved one will live again (Isaiah 26:19). I am very sorry for your loss. May God’s Word comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl ~ healingwordsforu@gmail.com.
